SEGURANÇA DA INFORMAÇÃO EM REDES INTELIGENTES OU “SMART GRID”

José Roberto Paim Neto, David Bianchini

Abstract


The smart grid networks are becoming increasingly present in the global electrical industry, mainly due to the great power of management and automation that such networks provide. There is an expectation that such intelligent solutions should be reliable and could be possible reduce the rate of non-technical losses in the power distribution processes, such as fraud, illegal connections, energy meter violations; which result in commercial losses for the electric power distributors and reduce the quality of the supplied energy. In Brazil, smart grids are undergoing expansion and there is an expectation to reduce the rate of commercial losses. This paper presents a critical analysis and risks about information security in smart grids, in a context of advancement communications, which provides an integrated computing environment and opens new possibilities for frauds and system vulnerabilities. Index Terms - Information security, intelligent networks, security, smart grid, power distribution networks.
